Getting Out of Your Own Way

August 24, 2016

Getoutoftheway… helps life to flow MUCH EASIER.

But somehow we’re always getting in the way of ourselves. We make things harder then they need to be.

You’ll know that you’re in your own way because you’re trying to FORCE AN OUTCOME which is currently unavailable to you. In other words, there’s something in your life that you are trying hard to secure (a relationship, job, housing situation, etc… ) but unfortunately it’s NOT materializing with ease.

So what do you do? Most of us naturally try HARDER, it’s human nature to do so and that’s an appropriate response, but to what end? If you find yourself in a situation where you’re continually trying and trying to force an outcome and it’s still eluding you, BACK OFF and recognize that there’s a reason why you are being held back from that outcome. Accept that in this moment, there’s a better outcome for you that hasn’t yet been discovered.

Continually pushing past resistance doesn’t bring you what you want faster, it just exhausts you. That resistance we run into is very purposeful. It’s in place to safeguard us from achieving a desired outcome that isn’t right for us.

Be careful what you wish for. If you push hard enough, you just might get it. And if it isn’t the right thing for you, you’ll soon realize that you didn’t really want it after all.

Get out of the way of yourself and let what’s right for you, find it’s way to you. Stop thinking you have all the answers. We seldom do. Stop fighting to make something happen and let life bring you what is meant to happen. You may be pleasantly surprised.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
